See the 12 most-asked questions we hear from companies looking to partner with Randstad Manufacturing and Logistics.

how do you measure and report on success with your clients?

We’ll work with you to create customized dashboards in order to benchmark and report on the KPIs that matter the most to your business. And since we're committed to continuous improvements, we're always evaluating our net promoter score (NPS), surveying our candidates and leveraging feedback across touchpoints to ensure we deliver the most value to you.

won't partnering with multiple staffing firms ensure i see better results?

We can see why you might think so. After all, if one vendor fails to deliver, you might feel safer having a backup — or backups, for that matter — in place. But in reality, there are clear drawbacks to working with multiple vendors.

For one, when multiple vendors are in the mix, you’re dealing with multiple delivery timelines as a result, with less visibility into the effectiveness of any given partnership. Alignment around your big-picture goals, a hallmark of any effective partnership, tends to suffer in turn. Worse still, having multiple partners also means you’ll have to spend that much more time managing vendor relationships — and that’s time not spent on achieving your strategic goals. Who wants to merge reports and summarize vendor performance multiple times a month?

There are distinct advantages to working with a single staffing partner like Randstad. We’re the world’s largest staffing provider, so we know a thing or two about staffing — and we have an extensive track record of delivering solutions that empower our clients to succeed. You’ll gain access to recruiters with deep domain expertise in your field and our unmatched nationwide talent network. By partnering with Randstad, you’ll benefit from timely reporting on your progress, visibility into SLAs and KPIs that we’re both accountable for, streamlined billing and invoicing, direct oversight for all initiatives — and so much more. The advantages to having a single trusted and engaged business partner are unlimited!

what's your approach to talent engagement and retention?

Client and candidate satisfaction is always top of mind for us. And this starts with our first-day quality check and continues with regular check-ins and monitoring. Plus, our best-in-class technology platforms ensure that communication channels are always open.

At the end of the day, every business is different, so we can be more or less hands-on in our approach — it all depends on your needs. For example, we have designated regional safety managers available across the country to support all of our client sites.

why go with randstad instead of a traditional recruiter?

We offer scalable talent solutions that can flex and adjust when your business needs change. You may not need a recruiter or recruiting team 12 months out of the year, after all, so why take on that burden? Between escalating advertising costs, screening expenses and potential unemployment and workers' compensation costs, the financial outlays add up quickly when you work with an internal recruiter.  When you partner with Randstad, you'll get access to a nationwide talent network and an entire team of talent experts working to support your goals — instead of a lone internal recruiter. In a tighter-than-ever labor market, that approach simply doesn't cut it.

are all manufacturing and logistics candidates from randstad screened and vetted?

We offer a wide range of pre-employment screening options, including skills tests and background checks, tailored to our clients needs. Our goal is to ensure that the candidates we place are not only qualified, but capable of contributing value to your business from day one. And for positions that require specific skill sets, like forklift drivers, we verify experience and provide a safety overview and pre-assignment assessment as required by OSHA. Safety — and the safety record of your business — is always our top priority at Randstad.

what kinds of benefits does Randstad offer employees?

That’s why we’re able to provide robust benefits packages — everything from medical and dental benefits to paid holidays, time off, discount programs and more. At the same time, we know that every business is different, so the benefits we offer can also be customized to match your specific needs.
